The School its history . . . . 



During the closing years of the nineteenth century, a group of far-sighted and 
energetic citizens of New Bedford foresaw the part that city was to play in the textile 
industry. They realized that in order for New Bedford to attain highest quality and 
workmanship in textile manufacture, trained men would be required. Thus was born 
the idea for a textile school; a school capable of training young men and women in all 
branches of the textile industry; men and women who would raise New Bedford to the 
ultimate in textile achievement. 

Accordingly, the Massachusetts State Legislature, under the Acts of 1895, Chapter 475, 
created a board of fifteen members whose duty it was to incorporate and establish 
the New Bedford Textile School. Toward this end, the City of New Bedford, and the 
State of Massachusetts each appropriated $25,000 to be used in establishing the school. 
From this rather humble beginning grew the institution which today is known and 
respected throughout the world. 

On October 14, 1899, the school was formally dedicated and opened for instruction. 
The first enrollment consisted of eleven day students and 183 night students. Each 
year saw such an increase in enrollment that enlargement of the school became imperative. 
Accordingly, the three story building was extended to the end line of Maxfield Street 
to provide for new courses. 

Under the guidance of Mr. William E. Hatch who was appointed its first principal in 
1904, the school was expanded to accommodate the increased enrollment. Today the 
school is regarded as the best in this section of the country, with over 100,000 square 
feet of floor space and equipment in excess of $275,000. 

At the outset, the school was established to teach cotton manufacturing and all its 
phases, but it naturally followed that a chemistry and a mechanical department should 
be added. There are two fine chemistry laboratories with various types of finishing 
equipment; also a fine mechanical department with a machine shop and drafting rooms. 
The C. Y. P. and Weaving departments are unexcelled in equipment and supervision, 
while the Rayon and Testing departments are rapidly making a name for themselves in 
the textile world. The Design department offers full instruction in design and analysis 
of all types of fabrics, while in the Knitting department full instruction is offered to 
those interested. 

In 1936 Mr. George Walker was appointed principal. Under his expert supervision 
New Bedford Textile School will continue to play a leading role in producing trained 
men and women for the textile industry.

JAMES H. ARMITAGE 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



Jimmy can waste more time and yet accomplish more, 
both in shop and in drafting, than anyone in the class. 
Whatever he attempts to do in the mechanical field will 
surely lead to success. 



FLOYD L. ASHWORTH 

New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical 

Many a dull drafting class has suddenly assumed brighter 
proportions when "Ashie" fancied himself a trap drummer 
in a swing band. Notwithstanding, Floyd is a hard worker, 
and has also carried the Textile colors on the athletic field.

ARNOLD C. ASPDEN

Chemistry 



Phi Psi 



Blessed with blond hair and twinkling blue eyes, "Arnie" 
proves the truth of the old adage, "he who speaks no evil 
fears no evil." Has made a daily dash across the bridge for 
three years. Holds an attendance record for this remark 
able feat. Swings a mean tennis racquet which only en 
hances his charm for Mary, Susie, Barbara, Jean, etc.. etc

"Gentleman and scholar." That is what Frank calls 
everyone else, but it describes him perfectly. He is also 
one of the most popular members of the class as a glance 
at his list of activities will show".

THOMAS P. BARRY 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Delta Kappa Phi 

Red-headed Tom disproves the saying that red hair and 
a fiery temper go together. His temper is very conspicuous 
by its absence. A baseball luminary, he has led the 
Textile sluggers in the home run department for the past 
two seasons. Does imitations of "Baby Snooks" and 
"Charlie McCarthy" on certain occasions. 

Treasurer 1; Baseball 1, 2, 3; Basketball 1; Advertising

FRANK M. BARYLSKI 

New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical 

One of the few electricians Mr. Foster has turned out, 
he is equally as smart in shop and drafting. Genial Frank 
certainly looks like a future "big leaguer" in the game of 
successful living. 



CHRISTOPHER A. BEST 



New Bedford, Mass. 



General 



Phi Psi 



"Stew" is a quiet, well mannered chap who seems to pos- 
sess that which most of us lack — culture. His life-like 
sketches of the fairer sex are greatly appreciated during 
most every lecture, but we are very much puzzled as to how 
he ever came to be called "Stew". 



CHARLES E. BLOSSOM 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Delta Kappa Phi 

"Bud's" surprising, and sometimes upsetting bits of in- 
formation on any and all subjects up for discussion, have 
placed him in the position of being both an amateur 
politician and an agitator at the same time. The course 
of any argument usually depends upon his point of view. 
Plays saxophone and clarinet in a dance band, and is 
recognized as an authority on "swing" music.

HORMIDAS R. BOUCHER 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



"Bushy" is one of the youngest and smallest members 
of the class. He is known as the "midget powerhouse" 
whose mischievous ways have established him deeply in our 
memories. 



FRANCIS P. CARNEY 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



Many are the times we have been held spellbound as 
Magician Carney performed a few sleight-of-hand tricks 
right before our eyes. A quiet, hard working fellow whom 
we are predicting someday will be a professional magician. 
How about a free pass Frank? 



ROBERT CLARKE 

New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



"Clarky" is a quiet, hardworking fellow who possesses 
a rare creative ability. He designed, built, and operates a 
Baby Whale outboard motorboat. His likeness to Charles 
Laughton, the cinema star, is very noticeable and often 
commented upon. 





ALICE MARGARET CUMMINGS 



Buffalo, N. Y. 



Special 



We don't know much about Margaret, as she has only 
been in school for a year. Nevertheless she has proven to 
be cheerful and good natured. and we certainly wish her 
the best of luck in her life's work.

HENRY M. CURRY 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

The lad with the dancing feet and eyes, he alone knows 
the secret of solving the most elusive of chemical problems 
to the accompaniment of a "swing" band. Has achieved 
some sort of a record for successive attendances at a cer- 
tain Wednesday night dance. The possession of unlimited 
vitality rounds out and supports Henry and his nightly 
schedule. 

Chaiiman Dance Committee 3; Prom Committee 3. 



CHARLES DeMELLO 

New Bedford, Mass. Special 

Charlie is one of the quiet members of the class. Very 
seldom seen or heard, he can usually be found in the testing 
lab wondering what is on the slide under his microscope. 



ROMEO W. DESORCY 



Acushnet, Mass. 



Mechanical 



A swashbuckling buckeroo who believes in burning the 
candle at both ends and fortunately never gets burnt. He 
often spins quite a yarn to the class about his lathe at 
home — we wonder. 



LOUIS L. GAGNON 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Delta Kappa Phi 

Generally found in the middle of every argument up- 
holding the minority opinion. Was instrumental in organ- 
izing a local Social Justice Union. An avid student of 
American History, but violently opposes the country's bank- 
ing system. Has the courage of his own convictions, and 
sways you by the force of his argument.

ROBERT N. GOLUB 

Fall River, Mass. Chemistry 

Sigma Phi Tau 

One of the most prolific of writers, he shows such interest 
that all other tasks are subordinated. Also the moving 
spirit behind all debating activities and, incidentally, the 
publicity chief of the school. During the past summer he 
extolled the virtues of a photographic studio from house 
to house. Noted for his terrific "gift of gab".

EUGENE GULA 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Rayon Preparation 



Gene is an example of what a true sport is. Plays base- 
ball and soccer and excels in both. Always passes things 
off with a wide smile. Also specializes in taking photo- 
micrographs in which our Gene is really outstanding. 

Soccer 1, 2; Baseball 1, 2. 



DONALD R. GURNEY 



New Bedford, Mass.

Dresses like a page out of Esquire. A real true friend 
with a load of personality and a winning smile. Best of 
luck "Don". 





DEXTER S. HORVITZ 

New Bedford, Mass. 

Sigma Phi Tau 



General 



"Dex" serves the General Class in the capacity of 
reference library. His notebooks are always in demand just 
before exams. A sunny disposition coupled with an "ear 
to ear" grin, which incidentally helps to brighten up every 
lecture, will help assure Dexter of a successful career.

BENJAMIN F. HOWE 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Chemistry 



At an early age he realized the value of making a hobby 
into a paying proposition. Is now a professional photo- 
grapher of no mean ability. Did all the candid and special 
effects photos in the book. Plans to study ballistics as an 
aid to furthering his profession. 



EDWARD J. HUDECEK 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Delta Kappa Phi 

Mighty fisherman. Mighty Hunter. Connoisseur of rare 
pictures and stories. Demon photographer with an eye 
toward the unique. An apt student of Paul Bunyan, and a 
veritable treasury of facts and figures. Has never been 
known to adopt a defeatist attitude. 

Prom Committee 3. 



EDWARD IZMIRIAN 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Tall, dark, and almost handsome, with a "remarkable 
ability for getting rhythm out of anything from a reagent 
bottle to a twenty gallon dye vat. Won an amateur con- 
test on his ocarina (commonly called "sweet pertater"), and 
has played command performances at practically all Textile 
dances. If chemical education fails to click, should be able 
to land a job as utility man in a dance orchestra. 

Dance Committee 2, 3; Humor Editor Fabricator. 



DEXTER W. JOHNSON 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



Textile has changed Dexter into a hard working, and well 
liked fellow. Being the object of many good-natured jibes, 
he can give as well as take. Our tall blond friend is bound 
to succeed as determination to progress is certainly among 
his fine characteristics.

JOHN B. KIELBASA 

New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



John is a quiet chap and easy to get along with, but 
often "still waters run deep." In the fall, Johnny's attention 
turns to football, as he quarterbacks one of our local 
gridiron teams. We wish you many touchdowns in the 
game of living, John. 



GEORGE A. KOVAR 

New Bedford, Mass. General 

Delta Kappa Phi 

"Soldier-Boy" Kovar has found himself at last since he 
joined the National Guard. At least someone appreciates 
his talent for making guns. George believes in the old 
adage "a question asked is knowledge gained", and he 
really puts this into practice. The class has had quite a 
number of laughs out of "Bohunk" as he goes about finding 
out things in his own inimitable way. 



HARRY E. KRIG 



Dartmouth, Mass. 



Mechanical 



Harry is a tall, blue-eyed blond who has grown up right 
before our eyes. He studies hard, and is rewarded with very 
desirable marks which all of us try for but seldom attain. 
In addition to his academic success, Harry was No. 1 man 
on our struggling golf team which sprang into existence 
during the past year. 

Golf 1, 2. 





HERMAN J. LORD 

New Bedford, Mass. Rayon Preparation 

Herman is among the tall silent members of the class. 
His chief hobby is the study of photography, in which 
subject he is considered somewhat of an expert. Also 
when it comes to taking photo-micrographs, Herman has few 
peers.

ALBERT MELLOR 

New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical 

Delta Kappa Phi 

"Al", a very well liked chap, has worked hard during 
his stay at Textile, and we sincerely believe that he will 
be rewarded for his earnest endeavors. The fact that he 
is our class Vice-President attests to his ability and 
popularity.

mittee. 



NORMAND L. MENARD 

New Bedford, Mass. 

Phi Psi 



Mechanical 



Normand is a likeable chap who has acquired the nick- 
name of "Speed" during his stay at Textile. We know 
that with his determination, combined with an ability to 
understand mechanical appliances, Normand will gain 
success. 



HERMAN J. MILLER 

Marthas Vineyard, Mass. Chemistry 

Sigma Phi Tau 

A little on the chubby side, with a ready smile and 
sunny disposition. Used to work in a pawn shop, so has 
the ability to judge values. One of the few intelligent 
enough not to enter into the usual Friday afternoon 
jamboree. During the summer sells fruits and vegetables to 
Marthas Vineyard's elite. Has worked hard and deserves 
much credit for this publication. 

Editor-in-Chief Fabricator. 



FRANK A. NIEC 

New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



Small, quiet, and almost inconspicuous, Frank neverthe- 
less has worked hard to acquire that knowledge which he 
considers important. With steam and electricity taking 
up most of his time, Frank will surely win any reward of- 
fered for hard work.

ROBERT A. POTTER 



New Bedford, Mass. 



General 



"Bob" was most certainly cut out to be a cartoonist. In 
addition to drawing caricatures of instructors and students, 
he always manages to liven up the class by his humorous 
asides and continual — humming? He is also very demo- 
cratic, and will seldom turn down an offer to share some- 
one else's lunch or homework.

FERDINAND W. PRYZBYLA 

New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical 

Easy to make friends with and a regular fellow, Fred is 
one who will succeed in his chosen field. He is a willing 
worker and an active participant in sports. His lack of 
stature did not in any way detract from his natural ability. 

Baseball 1, 2; Basketball 1, 2. 



ARNOLD F. RAMALHO 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Delta Kappa Phi 

Smiling and affable, yet very sensible, "Arnie" im- 
mediately took up the lead in class and fraternal activi- 
ties. What is more important, he held it all the way 
through. He has a sort of competence about him that 
dispels any doubt as to his ability to successfully complete 
any task entrusted to him.

"Mike" is the man about town of the Mechanical Course. 
His actions, while describing the adventures he often under- 
takes, are usually enjoyed by the entire class.

JOHN J. RYAN 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Chemistry 



Delta Kappa Phi 



Patrick is our favorite axis around which all class 
arguments flow. A rugged "individualist", he stands for 
his point of view in face of all logical arguments to the 
contrary. Nevertheless, his disarming smile cultivates few 
enemies and countless friends. A star on the baseball 
diamond, he is known under the name of "slugger".

SIDNEY G. SMITH 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Phi Psi 

Stands as one of our country's staunchest patriots, glory- 
ing in its military aspects. However, milder traits of 
character are paramount as evinced by his patience with 
tedious analytical procedures and unavoidable though 
negative results. Incidentally, he also has a lady-friend.

ZYGMUND E. SOJKA 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



"Ziggie" is a chap with a wide smile and a winning 
personality. A field representative of a well-known brush 
company, he will sell you anything from toothbrush to a 
vacuum cleaner. 



NATHANIEL STETSON 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Chemistry 



The harmony man of that incomparable ocarina duet 
combine of Izmirian and Stetson. Also flogs out a mean 
clarinet. Admittedly the A-l student of the class, his 
specialty is being able to work amid the general hubbub 
of a Friday afternoon in the lab.

STANLEY P. SWISZCZ 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



"Tiny" is quite a boy, standing well over 6' 6". He is 
also the class strong man, and we think those nightly trips 
to the Y. M. C. A. must have helped. Possessed with a rare 
sense of dry humor and bubbling over with good nature, 
he is bound to be a big success. 



EUNICE C. SYLVIA 



Falmouth, Mass. 



Special 



From Cape Cod came Eunice to learn the ins and outs of 
the Textile business. Being the only girl in the class last 
year, she soon proved her ability to take wisecracks and 
return them in kind. A good sport, and a willing worker, 
Eunice should make a name for herself in the testing game. 

Secretary 1, 2; Dance Committee 1, 2. 



GEORGE A. TRIPP 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Mechanical 



A small package and full of vitality, he is persistently 
amusing with his "drug store" humor. George will be 
well remembered for lis constant winning of raffles con- 
ducted by none other than himself.

FREDERICK A. WALKER 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Chemistry 



Delta Kappa Phi 



Fred expresses the modern competitive businessman of 
today, minus the competition. Sells candy and snacks as 
a sideline. Feels quite at ease with one eye in an organic 
book and the other on credit lists. Has become indispens- 
able on various committees because, HE HAS A CAR.

FRANCIS H. WALSH 

New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry 

Delta Kappa Phi 

Fran has a sort of calm disposition which no one can seem 
to ruffle. Also qualifies as the electrician of the class. 
Worked in the General Electric Laboratories in Cleveland 
last summer. Enjoys the enviable reputation of having a 
steady girl-friend to whom he really is faithful.

JOHN W. WHALLEY 



New Bedford, Mass.

John is a quiet, conservative chap who is Mr. Fawcett's 
right hand man. Enjoys his daily ride to school with an 
instructor who hails from Acushnet. Greatest joy is when 
he is on the basketball floor.

LEOPOLD J. WINIARSKI 



New Bedford, Mass. 



Chemistry 



Delta Kappa Phi 



Not exactly the shy retiring type, his opinion on any 
subject is freely given. Will bet on practically anything 
if given odds. Whenever Leo offers odds it's almost certain 
to be a sure thing. He is also a star athlete as a glance 
below will show.

THEODORE J. ZUBRZYCKI 

Bridgewater, Mass. Mechanical 

A hard-working chap who entered our ranks a stranger 
but will leave as a friend. Has made a daily trek from 
Bridgewater for which feat he deserves much credit. Has 
also held high the Textile colors on the field of sports.

Alumni Association 



r I^HE alumni association of the New Bedford Textile School congratulates the Class 
of Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-eight. It is our wish that each and every one 
of you find success and happiness in your work. 

Do not deceive yourselves that yours is a royal road ahead. Rather be proud that 
you have educated yourselves to surmount most difficulties as you meet them. It is 
the hope of the alumni that you will profit by these experiences in attaining greater 
heights. 

Today, in every office, shop, store, and factory, there is a constant weeding out 
process going on. Employers are constantly sending away men who have shown their 
incapacity to further the interests of the business, and others are being taken on. No 
matter how good times are, this sorting continues, but if limes are hard and work is 
scarce, the sorting is finer. Self interest prompts every employer to keep only the best. 
You are now equipped with the education that makes you one of the best. Do not 
neglect it. 

Go after your first job with enthusiasm and self-confidence, and when you get it, 
hold it with initiative, energy, loyalty, and willingness to learn. If you make a 
mistake, admit it frankly; employers admire candor from their workers. If you 
find others advance faster than you, do not become discouraged and do not blame 
it on the system — search yourself for the reason, and when you find it, correct it. 

From the vantage point gained after three years of successful effort, we ask that 
you halt for a moment to gaze backward along the trail whereon you have met much 
that was pleasant and much that should remain highly valued to you. 

The alumni offer you the opportunity to continue these pleasant associations of the 
past three years by becoming a member of their society. 

During the past year, our organization has started a drive for an increase in mem- 
bership, and we sincerely hope that the entire Class of 1938 will join our association.

Class History 

One thing at least is certain — this life flies. — Rubaiyat 

When we, as green little Freshmen, entered the portals of the New Bedford Textile 
School on that bright September morn in 1935, we soon learned another axiom, not 
a philosophical gem by Khayyam but a concise reflection, the product of experience — 
one thing more is certain — our money flies, but we were, and we realize it now, in 
no position to begrudge the flight of our money through that iron cage for its boun- 
tiful return was our education, the foundation upon which the material success of 
our future lives will be built. 

Little did we realize then, that our three years would fly by so quickly and that 
in this short time we would change from awkward students to self-confident, eager 
young men and women so well versed in the arts and sciences of the textile world as 
to enable us to work our way to the key positions of our chosen profession, if that is 
what destiny holds in store for us. 

Let us now turn back the pages of our memory book and live again through that 
trying, yet delightful, period of orientation, so common to students entering a strange 
institution amidst a group of unfamiliar fellow pupils. There was the constant oppor- 
tunity to make new friends, the continued absentmindedness which led one astray 
into the wrong buildings, the open-mouthed astonishment as we were continually 
finding new types and kinds of textile machinery, the likes of which we never knew 
existed. The constant effort to remember where to go and at what time and the over- 
powering fear of being one second tardy and getting docked 50%. Thusly, we 
groped around until we were acclimated to conditions. 

When we thought that we had become well enough acquainted, we took upon our- 
selves the duty of electing our representatives. We chose Nathaniel Stetson, Presi- 
dent; John Misiasik, Vice President; Thomas Barry, Treasurer; Madeleine Robinson, 
Secretary. These officers proved themselves to be very capable and deserving of their 
positions of trust. Following elections, came the time when we pledged ourselves 
to the several fraternities, and suffered the agonies of the initiates, but we made a 
firm resolution to even things up in future years, which we did. However, all was 
not play and we had many occasions to use that grey matter so preciously guarded 
in our younger days. We met the mid-year and final exams and took them all 
in our stride before we hit the trail toward an enjoyable summer's vacation. 

When we again assembled before the cashier's cage in September of 1936, we 
found that our class had been enlarged by a group of embryonic machinists. We 
again went through an election campaign, the ultimate victors being Harry Avila, 
President; John Gaughan, Vice President; Nathaniel Stetson, Treasurer; and Hazel 
Levy, Secretary. This year we got started off on the right foot socially and ran sev- 
eral dances at which we made the usual social error of getting on to the wrong feet 
as young men will do. We ran our first dance solely on a lot of nerve and a little

borrowed capital, but at the end of the year we loudly applauded Nat Stetson as 
he announced that we were safely entrenched on the right side of the ledger. In 
our second year the work piled up and weeks seemingly shortened to days and months 
to weeks and we were once more scanning the "Help Wanted" columns in search of 
summer employment. 

In the fall of '37 we entered school with the reserve, dignity, and aloofness so 
characteristic of seniors. Our class officers for this all important year were Arnold 
Ramalho, President; John Gaughan, Vice President; Frank Aspin, Treasurer; and 
Eunice Sylvia, Secretary. Later in the year we elected Albert Mellor to fill the 
vacancy left by the resignation of John Gaughan. 

During the course of this year we also lost one of our best-liked students, Albert 
Louie, who was forced to return to his home in Seattle because of illness. We also 
elected our Fabricator Staff and several committees were appointed to take care 
of such necessities as dances, prom, rings, and the other things so indispensable 
to the life of a senior. 

The several athletic coaches will certainly have heavy hearts when they see their 
star athletes and the mainstays of the Textile teams march off the stage, diploma in 
hand, never again to return to the field of sports in a Tech uniform to fight for the 
honor and glory of what is now our Alma Mater. Such stalwarts will be lost as 
Gula, Barry, Winiarski, Aspin, Ashworth, Aspden, Gagnon, Ryan, Rihbany, Zubricki, 
Presbyla, Krig, Wally, and Gourley's invaluable assistant, Walsh. Also lost down the 
sheepskin trail, to the newest organization, the Debating Team, are Golub and Walsh. 

It seemed but a few weeks after our Christmas recess when we started boning for 
our final exams. Then, the real thrill of a lifetime, you have passed and are 
eligible to receive that coveted diploma, the visible reward of effort and application 
to your studies. 

As we approached the month of May the boys became a group of Silas Marners 
scrimping and saving for that eventful prom which was but a few days removed. 
The day or rather the night came and there among a veritable sea of winsome lasses 
the class of 1938 held forth to frolic for the last time as students of the same school. 

Then, as we filed slowly across the stage and were presented with our diplomas 
by the Honorable Ernest L. Robitaille, we suddenly realized for the first time 
what a great debt we owed to our Principal and instructors for their patience, 
perseverance, and understanding, and we resolved that by our good work in the 
future we shall attempt to repay them for their effort. 

Farewell, a word that must be and hath been — • 
A sound that makes us linger — yet, Farewell.

Freshman Chemistry 

TNTRODUCING the Freshman Chem- 
istry Class, a group of well-man- 
nered young men who we know will 
make the school proud of them some 
day. 

Neil Besse — Neil is earnest and able 
in all that he does and is a fellow who 
we are glad to call friend. 

Edward Simpson — Quiet and thought- 
ful, Eddie is one who inspires confi- 
dence, and who will some day be a 
success in his chosen field. 

Felix Buba — If you want to be popu- 
lar with the opposite sex, you have to 
be blond. Felix is a shining example of 
this fact. 

Carl Carlin — Carl generally doesn't 
have much to say, but when he does say 
something, it is worth listening to. 

William Marceau — Bill is another 
quiet fellow who minds his own business 
and believes that practice makes a 
chemist. 

Francis McQuillan — According to 
what the girls say, Mac is becoming 
more handsome every day. We heartily 
agree with them in their belief. 



Paul Riley — Paul is a typical example 
of what a chemist should be. A diligent 
worker, Paul usually finds what he 
seeks. 

Earl Wilson — Popular with all, Earl's 
cheery personality helps him make 
friends wherever he goes. 

Joseph Leal — We know without a 
doubt that Joe is a comer, and it will not 
be long before he will be amply re- 
warded for his diligence. 

Theodore Ziemba — Anything but shy, 
Ted is always willing to help out when 
called upon. 

John Gilman — Whatever task he is 
given to do, John does it quietly and 
produces results. 



George 



Silsby — George is always 
sincere and serious in what he does, be 
it chemistry or any other subject. 

Edward Mullaly — Ted is our class de- 
bater, and it always pays to listen to 
what he has to say. 

Milton Kramer — Milton has an in- 
fectious grin which makes him one of 
the most popular boys in the class. 




Standing: E. Simpson, F. Buba, N. Besse, E. Mullaly, G. Silsby, J. Gilman, C. Carlin, W. Marceau.

Freshman Qeneral-Special 



TfTHEN September 15, 1937 rolled 
** around, a group of young men 
who chose the Textile industry for their 
future work in life, enrolled in the 
General Cotton class. Whether or not 
they made a wise choice remains to be 
seen, but nevertheless, here they are. 

Raymond Gobeil — Besides claiming to 
be a squash player, Ray also claims to 
be a Don Juan. We're more inclined to 
believe the latter. 

Leslie Tripp — Leslie always had a 
great habit of going to the show on 
Tuesday afternoon. We're still wonder- 
ing who or what broke him of the habit. 

Rudy Poliquin — Rudy hails from 
Maine, and when he returns home, hell 
be able to teach the people a great art 
he learned at Textile, 
arettes. 



chiseling 



Howard Rossitter — Howie is the fel- 
low who takes all his subjects seriously, 
especially weaving. This department 
seems to hold the greatest interest for 
him. 

George Curry — If worse comes to 
worse, George can always fall back on 
his old trade, dispensing soft drinks 
behind the fountain. 

Winston Sagar — Winston came to 



Textile to study textiles and is doing a 
very good job of it. 

John Walsh — John should have 
studied for a music career. His fine 
voice puts many a singer to shame. 

Raymond Babbitt — Ray is outstand- 
ing both in his studies and in athletics. 
He is also very popular among the 
student body. 

Arthur Coe — Aside from being one of 
the smartest students in the school, Art 
also ranks high in the art of playing a 
trumpet. 

William Poisson — Hank is the Em- 
peror Napoleon of the class. A bright 
student in every department, Hank 
should rise to great heights. 

Ray Liddle — Ray believes that there 
is no place like home whenever a holi- 
day occurs. Unfortunately, he lives in 
Johnstown, N. Y., which is a long way 
from here. 

Gilman Maynard — Gil is the big boy 
of the class whose delight is photogra- 
phy. Gil would look spic if he didn't 
have so much span. 

Leon Boiko — Leon seems to have a 
special delight in arguing with a certain 
instructor. In fact, Leon claims he will 
argue with anyone just for the sake of 



arguing.

Freshman Mechanical 



PRESENTING the first year mechani- 
cal students in a typical shop 
scene. 

On lathe No. 1, two of Mr. Bayreu- 
ther's left handed mechanics, "Baby 
Face" Mikus and "Hi Ho" Houghton, 
can be seen exchanging their brilliant 
ideas. Glancing at lathe No. 2, we find 
"Whistler" Goldrick leaning on the lathe 
with his green tie dangling in a can of 
lard oil. 

From the other side of the room a 
thunderous roar can be heard, but 
it is only "Pappy" Anselmo telling 
"Choppy" Rose about the girl he went 
out with last night. "Trader Horn" 
DesRuisseau can be seen with his 
pockets filled with stock waiting to be 
turned down to size. From the dark 
corner comes a grunt and a groan, a 
sure sign that "Tarzan" Donald, with 
his tongue between his teeth, is trying 
to tighten his tool post. He finally has 
to call his pal "Speed" Schweidenback 
to aid him. Ernie is the wizard of the 
shop and does most of the extra work. 



An argument can always be heard 
around the shaper between "Robert 
Taylor" Bellavance and "Flash" Paty- 
kula over their girl friends. Near the 
tool room, one will always find Joe 
Pollit listening to his pal, Lud Ble- 
charzyk, sing some Polish tune. If at 
any time help is needed, "Cue Ball" 
Ogrodnick can always be called upon. 
Joe is an aggressive fellow and will 
get along very well in his future life. 

"Chubby" Landry can always be 
found asleep on his lathe, and across 
from him is "Hitler" Erickson working 
like a slave trying to get his work done, 
but who will always stop to lend a 
helping hand. "Lochinvar" Pieraccini 
can always be found trucking up and 
down the aisle. Finally the voice of 
"Curly" Schick can be heard crooning 
one of the popular tunes of the day. 

Such is the First Year Mechanical 
class, a nice group of which the school 
may well be proud.

SECOND YEAR CHEMISTRY CLASS AS VIEWED BY A NEUTRAL OBSERVER 



WILLIAM "Willy Bill" Armitage— Bill, 
still as big and husky as ever, this year 
has made women his pet hobby. 

Gerald "Jerry" Aillery — Jerry has developed 
muscles the Harrington way. telling everyone 
else how strong he is. 

James "Jim" Beattie — Jim's ambition is to 
be a great radio comedian. As far as the class 
is concerned, he has no future. 

David "Dave" Braiden — Lanky Dave is the 
chap who came from Illinois to New Bedford 
to go out with a Fall River girl. 

Herbert "Herby" Briggs — Herbert is the 
class's Don Juan. When he goes out with 
girls they really Don Juan him. 

Samuel "Sam" Craven — Sam calls Eddie 
Cantor "The Stork", for Eddie brought Deanna 
Durbin into Sam's world. 

Robert "Bob" Connors — We ought to nick- 
name Connors "Cattle" because he's always 
talking about his stock. 

Paul Dalbec — Textile is ruining Paul. He 
has arrived at the stage where he chews gum 
and slams doors. 

Clifford "Cliff" Flanagan— Cliff has a bigger 
line than Notre Dame had last year. 

George "Quacky" Duckworth — The class will 
never forget the day George dyed a dress black 
and it came out green. 

Fred "Freddie" Geary — Fred goes out with 
a different class of girls, since he has his new 
car. 



John "Muscles" Harrington — John claims 
Darwin was right. We know you've been look- 
ing in the mirror, John. 

Edward "Deacon" Houghton — Houghton is 
the one who listens to off-color jokes dis- 
gustedly and then rushes to tell them to some- 
one else. 

Elton "Elky" Mann — Elky is the only one 
in the class who never grew up to be a man. 
He was born one. 

Donald "Don" Phinney — Don's girl runs an 
elevator. Maybe that is why Don has so many 
ups and downs. 

Donald "Don" Smith — Don says that Ver- 
mont, his home state, is so far behind times, 
that they think a toll has to be paid at 
"Auction Bridge". 

Richard "Dickie" Temple — We call canaries 
"Dickie", but that's all right, for Dickie always 
gets the bird. 

Alfred "Wizzie" Zawisza — "Porky" this year 
is basking in reflected glory as baseball man- 
ager, which is Textile's name for official bat- 
boy. 

Joe Dias — They are calling it "Snow White 
and the Six Dwarfs" now. as "Dopey" is 
president of the Second Year Class. 

Henry "Hank" Taylor — Henry is No. 1 on 
Textile's hit parade. During Lent he was 
always making hot cross puns.

GENERAL CLASS MEETING 
Secretary's Report 



PRESIDENT Gorden Ogden called 
the meeting to order and a dis- 
cussion was held as to why Gorden is 
president (self-appointed, as at our 
election everyone in the class received 
one vote) . It was finally decided that 
since he is never absent and is the class 
angel, he will be allowed to keep his 
office. 

At this point, Harry T. Perkins dis- 
played a picture of Stan Pelczarski 
which he had just drawn. Although it 
was drawn on a very large sheet of 
paper, he could not fit all of Stan on 
it. Looking at the drawing, Stan let go 
with a few of his choice wisecracks. In 
order to change the subject, John Libby 
was called upon to give an explanation 
of his latest invention, a super, double, 
fancy, cotton wire, bead doup leno. 
Libby plunged right into his explana- 
tion and had to be forcefully ejected 
in order to stop him. 

Nelson Kessel asked for the floor 



and placed a motion before the class 
that we circulate a petition asking for 
classes on Saturday. The motion was 
seconded by Ogden and was then voted 
down by the class 6-2. 

James Potter was now given the floor 
and gave a speech on vacuum cleaners. 
Being unable to sell the boys, Jimmie 
solicited the class for watches to be 
repaired. The only watch in the class 
belonged to Louie Pacheco, and after 
one look at it, Potter refused to attempt 
repairs. Scott Whitcher then took the 
floor, and after he fumed and sputtered 
a few minutes, he was asked to sit down. 
A treasurer's report was then given by 
Louis Pacheco, stating the class balance 
to be $0.00. The class then entered into 
a general discussion on girls. No win- 
dows were broken and there were no 
hospital cases. Meeting was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Herbert D. Cray, Secretary

Sigma Phi Tau 



r |"*HE past year has been very successful, especially in social activities, for the 
members of Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity, Beta Chapter. Working in close co- 
operation with Gamma Chapter of the Durfee Textile School, the New Bedford 
organization has sponsored many affairs Avhich have been widely attended. A notice- 
able trend during the season was toward bigger and better meetings, with a very 
satisfactory turnout from the alumni. 

Officers elected at the beginning of the school year were: 

Councillor — Herman Miller 
Exchequer — Robert Golub 
Corresponding Scribe — Dexter Horvitz 
Recording Scribe — Milton Kramer 

The first event of the social season was a smoker held at the New Bedford Hotel 
on October 8, and was enjoyed by members and invited guests, some of whom 
were from Fall River. George Levovsky, graduate of the local school, spoke on 
the growth of Sigma Phi Tau since it was started at the Philadelphia Textile School. 
Only 22 years old, the organization now includes five active and alumni chapters. 

Walter Kayem was accepted as a member of Beta Chapter and it was decided to 
run a joint dance in honor of the new brothers in both chapters. The informal 
dinner-dance was held at Luke's Lodge, Tiverton, on March 20. The floor show, 
dancing, and dinner were arranged by the dance committee, headed by Lou Brody. 

Among the speakers at special meetings of the local unit have been Jack Goldfarb 
and Edward Friedberg. Mr. Goldfarb gave a very interesting talk on the silk indus- 
try, and explained how and why silk can still compete with rayons manufactured 
in the United States. The lecture by Mr. Friedberg was on the subject "Improve- 
ments in the art of finishing", in which he explained several new processes that 
are now being done in his plant. 

The crowning event of the fraternal season Was the annual convention which was 
held in New York on April 30-31. Many fraters attended from New Bedford and 
enjoyed themselves immensely. It is claimed by all who went that the affair was 
the biggest and best ever held by Sigma Phi Tau.

Phi Psi 



"DETA Chapter was founded in 1904, one year after Alpha was organized at the 
Philadelphia Textile School. Phi Psi is the largest Textile fraternity in the 
world, having both national and foreign affiliations. 

The Annual Open House and Smoker was held early in September at the fraternity 
rooms, and it was a gala evening. Mr. John Shea, President of the Board of Trustees 
and an executive at the Mount Hope Finishing Co., was the principal speaker of the 
evening. Ten new candidates were brought into Phi Psi, and we were fortunate in 
having among them our Principal, Mr. George Walker, who was admitted as an 
honorary member. 

Among the social highlights of the year was the joint Third Degree and Banquet 
held at the Hotel Myles Standish in Boston, in conjunction with Gamma and Deita 
Chapters. The Banquet was held in the Captain's Cabin, and the degree was admin- 
istered in the Mandarin Room. A semi-formal dance was held at the Wareham 
Country Club, and a joint dance was held with Delta Kappa Phi at the New Bedford 
Hotel. 

This year the annual convention took place at the Hotel Pilgrim in Plymouth on 
Cape Cod. Golf, tennis, swimming, and horseback riding were enjoyed by all. The 
affair was well attended, and will always be remembered by those who attended. 

The annual farewell banquet and dance was a huge success. At this affair the 
girls received fraternity favors as is the custom every year at this time. 

Beta will lose five men through graduation this year. To them we offer our 
congratulations and extend to them best wishes for success and happiness.

Delta Kappa Phi 



■~\ELTA Chapter of the Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity was the third chapter to obtain 
a charter from the oldest textile fraternity in America. Delta was granted 
a charter in 1917. 

At an informal get-together and smoker held in our new rooms in the center section 
of the city, the new students of the school who received invitations had an oppor- 
tunity to meet the members, faculty members, and several of the alumni. Several of 
these prospective candidates became pledges and after the necessary informal 
degrees they were passed, and then received their formal degree and pledged them- 
selves to carry on in the traditions symbolical of the Delta Kappa Phi. This year 
we had the honor and pleasure of inducting into our fraternity the latest acquisition 
to the faculty, Mr. Antone Rodil, instructor in the weaving department. 

Shortly after this confirmation of the final degree, we were greatly saddened by 
the untimely death of one of our brothers, Brother Roger Lumbard. 

Many a profitable hour was passed away by the fratres as they enjoyed the many 
recreational advantages and opportunities for profound study offered to those 
using the fraternity rooms. 

The height of the social season was reached when, with the splendid cooperation 
of the Beta Chapter of Phi Psi, we ran an inter-fraternity dance in the grand ball- 
room of the New Bedford Hotel. 

After many weeks of diligent planning the Delta Chapter sponsored the National 
Convention of the fraternity held here April 29 and 30. The visiting fratres were 
taken on a tour of the city and its historic points of interest. The business meeting 
was held Saturday afternoon and the convention brought to a close at the banquet 
and dance held in the evening. 

At the business meeting, the following National Officers were elected: 

Supreme Consul — R. Allen Watson 
Supreme Pro Consul — Joseph E. Goodavage 
Supreme Annotater — A. Ward France 
Supreme Custodian — G. Edwin Wilson 

At the conclusion of the National Convention, Delta Chapter elected its slate of 
officers for the forthcoming year. Edward L. Murphy was elected Trustee for the 
Chapter. 

As the closing weeks of the semester drew near, the Chapter tendered a farewell 
dinner followed by a dance to the eleven members who are now joined in the ranks 
of the alumni.

Baseball 



TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT TRAINING 
STATION 

Textile opened its 1937 baseball season 
by losing a thrilling, closely played 
game to a strong Navy nine by 6-5. In 
the eighth inning Textile tied the score 
with some very timely hitting, but a 
double play by the Sailors put a check 
on further hopes of scoring. 

The heavy hitters in this first game 
were Tom Barry and Jack Ryan, the 
former getting two singles while Jack 
banged out two doubles. Gene Gula and 
Vera Hillman proved to be a smooth- 
working combination. 

TEXTILE vs. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 
FRESHMEN 

Losing its second game in as many 
starts, Textile dropped another heart- 
breaking 10-inning game to the Provi- 
dence College squad by a score of 11-7. 

The Friars scored 5 runs in the tenth 
inning when Textile's pitching weakened 



and its defense collapsed. In spite of 
all their determined efforts, the Mill- 
men were only able to score once in the 
last frame. Again a double play pre- 
vented Textile from staging a rally, for 
in the last inning the Friars executed a 
snappy double play to end the game. 
Tom Barry's double and triple were 
the highlights for the Textile squad. 

TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

Textile finally crashed into the win 
column in the third game of the season 
by defeating their rival from Fall River 
to the tune of 9-8 in a thrilling hard 
fought eleven-inning game. 

The game was a heavy hitting affair 
from the start, with the Millmen finally 
hitting their stride and playing bang-up 
ball. Ramsbotham, Winiarski, Ryan, 
and Gula led the way for Textile by col- 
lecting two or more hits. 

Hillman again turned in a very good 
performance as relief hurler and cer- 
tainly deserved the victory.

TEXTILE vs. DEAN ACADEMY 

Having finally hit their stride, Textile 
won its second game of the season at 
the expense of Dean Academy, trimming 
them to the score of 11-5. 

A total of fifteen hits were obtained 
by the team, eight of them being good 
for extra bases. Ramsbotham and Ash- 
worth were the big guns of the day, Alan 
collecting three singles while Ashie 
garnered a homer and a double. Vera 
Hillman again pitched a very good 
game, allowing only five hits and strik- 
ing out eleven men. 

TEXTILE vs. WENTWORTH 
INSTITUTE 

Showing an absolute reversal of form 
and playing its poorest game of the 
season, Textile bowed to Wentworth by 
the score of 16-3. The team showed no 
trace of its class and style of ball play- 
ing of which it was capable, and thus 
bowed to a superior team. 

Alan Ramsbotham again starred for 
Textile by banging out a triple and a 
single. Joe Dias turned in a commend- 
able performance as a relief hurler in 
allowing only three runs in six innings. 

TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE 

Textile snapped back into the win 
column by defeating Becker 10-3. This 
was the team's second game in as many 
days, and the squad showed a complete 
change from their loose playing of the 
day before. 

Vera Hillman, starting pitcher, 
opened a little erratic but finally settled 
down to turn in a fine job of pitching 
by striking out twelve batters. The 
Barry-Ryan combination clicked again 
in this game, Tom getting two singles, 



while Jack clipped a double and two 



singles. 



TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

Keeping on the win side of the ledger, 
Textile downed its local rival, Voca- 
tional, by the score of 9-1. The game, 
however, was much more exciting and 
interesting than what the score indicates. 
Both teams played very fine ball and it 
was by superior pitching that Textile 
finally won. 

This game marked Joe Dias' first 
mound start, and he turned in a very 
commendable performance by allowing 
only five hits. Featuring for Textile 
was Elton Mann who drove out three 
smashing doubles. Freddie Frey also 
had a good day at the bat by collecting 
two singles. 

TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT TRAINING 
STATION 

It was evident that the Sailors from 
Newport had the Indian sign on Textile 
during the baseball season, for playing 
a return game with the Training Station 
squad, the Millmen again had to bow 
to the Sailors by the score of 14-6. 
Credit must be given the team for they 
really played a very good game. 

Textile started out with a bang, for 
in the first inning they scored three 
runs, but this lead was short lived for 
in their half of the same inning, the 
Sailors accounted for six runs. From 
then on there was no doubt about the 
outcome of the game. 

The fielding gem of the game was 
made by Tom Barry who pulled off a 
snappy double play unassisted. Vera 
Hillman and Gene Gula led the Textile 
hitters with two singles apiece.

TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

With Vera Hillman holding the 
Durfee Textile baseball team to four 
scattered hits, Textile won another game 
from its rival. 

Textile scored heavily in the first, 
third, and sixth innings, the boys hitting 
the ball with a lusty vigor. Tom Barry 
and Floyd Ashworth led the local bat- 
ters at the plate by getting a double and 
single apiece. 

TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE 

Textile again remained in the win 
column by defeating Becker again at 
Worcester, 6-4. The team displayed the 
ability of which it was capable and 
really had no trouble in winning the 
game. 

Outstanding features in the game for 
Textile were Vera Hillman's fine pitch- 
ing and Tom Barry's excellent fielding. 
Leading in the batting department was 
Floyd Ashworth followed closely by 
Tom Barry. Alan Ramsbotham again 
played his usual fine game and made two 
sensational catches in the outfield. 
TEXTILE vs. WENTWORTH 
INSTITUTE 

In a return game with Wentworth 
Institute, Textile again lost by a score 
of 2-1. Unlike their first meeting of 
the season, Textile played a very close 
game with Vera Hillman twirling very 
good ball. The game was a pitcher's 
battle right up to the ninth inning, but 
too many free passes by Hillman finally 
led to his downfall. 

There were quite a number of the 
students present to see this game, for 
the entire student body was dismissed for 
the game. Those students present saw 
the Textile team play a superb fielding 
game for they completed no less than 
three double plays. 

TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

In its poorest played game of the 



season, Textile was upset by Vocational 
at Buttonwood Park by the score of 5-4. 
Leo Winiarski, pitcher for Textile, 
pitched a good game up 'till the ninth 
inning. In the first half of the ninth 
he made three errors which clinched 
the game for Vocational. 

Gene Gula and Tom Barry again led 
the Textile batters, and both turned in 
a very good game. 

FOUL TIPS 

Well, it proved to be a fairly success- 
ful season after all, even though Man- 
ager Fran Walsh did have to turn nurse- 
maid a few times. 

Tom Barry came back from Worces- 
ter with more capital than what he took 
with him. Tom evidently learned that 
little trinkets have cash value. Poor 
girl. 

Leo Winiarski did a very good job of 
fainting in the last inning of the Voke 
game. Hollywood would pay plenty 
for such a great performance, Leo. 

When Jack Ryan dropped a fly ball 
in the sixth inning of the Providence 
College game, he brought his glove in 
before Coach Gourley had a chance to 
say anything. Jack was right — good old 
bench. 

Here's one we have to tell. During 
the Becker game at Worcester, one fair 
damsel was heard to say "My, doesn't 
the catcher for Textile look like Shirley 
Temple." The catcher's name happened 
to be Gula — Gene to you. 

Scott Whitcher used to work around 
first base in a pair of "snuggies". At 
least that is what they looked like. How 
he ever bent over to scoop up the ball 
and still keep them intact is something 
we could never stop wondering at. 

It was pretty bad when the man who 
was running the team had to retrieve 
all the foul balls. There's no justice, 
eh, Fran?

TEXTILE vs. BRIDGEWATER 
TEACHER'S COLLEGE 

Playing its opening game of the sea- 
son against Bridcewater. New Bedford 
Textile suffered its first defeat by 3-1. 
Nevertheless, the Millmen forced their 
opponents to battle with their backs 
to the wall for a greater part of the game 
and did make a creditable showing. 

Textile's lone score came when Mann 
passed the ball to Anselmo and the latter 
converted with a hard forceful boot. 
Textile's score might have been higher 
had the finishing punch around the goal 
been present. Gula, Patykula. and Dias 
were outstanding in their kicking ability 
and all around play. 
TEXTILE vs. CLARK UNIVERSITY 

Through the remarkable playing of 
its goaltender, Clark University man- 
aged to hold Textile to a 1-1 tie. Most 
of the afternoon's play was in Clark's 
territory, as the Millmen were con- 
stantly hammering at Clark's goal. It 
was in the third period that Clark 
scored its lone tally. 



Anselmo scored Textile's goal on a 
great pass from Elton Mann. Sammy 
Craven and Mann were the main cogs 
in Textiles offensive drives, while Stan 
Pelczarski play r ed a bang up game de- 
fensively. 

TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE 

In a hard fought game which was 
played mostly in heavy" downpours and 
strong winds, Textile defeated the hither- 
to undefeated Thibodeau College 2-1. 
The weather produced a great many 
freak plays, most of which were never 
seen before. 

Both of Tech's goals were scored in 
the second half. The first came when 
Houghton rushed the goalie who failed 
to dribble out. Eddie carried the 
guardian with the ball into the netting. 
Tbe second goal came when Mann scored 
on a clever ten yard kick. 

Although all the players for the Mill- 
men put in a fine game, Houghton and 
Mann deserve to be mentioned for their 
great performance.

TEXTILE vs. CLARK UNIVERSITY 
For the second time this season, Clark 
University held New Bedford Textile to 
a tie, this time the score being 2-2. 
Starting off strongly, Clark kept the 
ball in Tech's territory for the greater 
part of the first half, but in Ray Babbit 
they found a firm bulwark. Ray cap- 
ably handled all of the opponent's 
thrusts, including three spectacular 

saves. 

The first goal of the game was scored 
by Ted Zubricki, substituting for 
Houghton who was injured in a scramble 
for the ball. Fine passing on the part of 
Dias and Patykula led to Textile's sec- 
ond score with Stan Pelczarski scoring. 
Following this, Clark, tied the score 
with but three minutes to play remaining 

in the game. 

Sammy Craven, the little man with a 
big kick, proved to be an important part 
in Textile's offense by making remark- 
able placement kick. Whalley, Mann 
and Carlin played their best games thus 
far, helping considerably to keep the 
ball in Clark's area during the second 

half. 

TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

Durfee Textile, New Bedford's rival 
from Fall River, set the local team back 
by the score of 2-0. This was the first 
time this season that New Bedford was 
shut out entirely. As a whole, the team 
was decidedly off form. 

Gene Gula and Alex Patykula were 
the only local players that showed any 
form. Both were accurate in their kick- 
ing and showed fine spirit in defensive 
playing. 
TEXTILE vs. HARVARD FRESHMEN 

Playing its best brand of ball for the 
season, New Bedford Textile defeated 
the powerful Harvard Frosh 4-2 at Cam- 
bridge. From the opening kickoff Tex- 
tile had things its own way. 

Ted Zubricki, substituting for Whal- 



ley, started the scoring when he started 
a drive into the netting during the first 
period. Anselmo then scored two in a 
row in the third period, while Harvard 
was only able to make one tally. "Little 
Stan" Pelczarski closed Textile's scoring 
with a beautiful shot from a wide angle. 
Whalley, after returning to the game, 
did some fine kicking and passing which 
resulted in two scores. 

TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 

Earning a well earned 2-1 victory, 
New Bedford Textile avenged its defeat 
of earlier in the season at the hands of 
Durfee Textile. Filled with action 
throughout the way, the contest brought 
about bitter argument from both teams. 

Anselmo started off the scoring in the 
second period by placing a neat shot 
between the uprights. This period was 
New Bedford's best for the ball was 
kept continually in Durfee's territory. 
The other goal scored by the locals was 
made by Elton Mann who gave the 
ball an unerring boot on a pass from 
Pelczarski. 

Joe Dias, Carl Carlin, and Alex Paty- 
kula were outstanding along with Gene 
Gula who stood out in the defence. 

TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE 
New Bedford Textile lost its final 
game of the season, bowing to the strong 
Thibodeau College eleven at Fall River 
to the score of 2-1. The Textile squad 
was lacking the final punch to put the 
ball across every time they came close 
to the opposition goal. This was un- 
fortunate, for it cost them their final 
game. 

Setting a rapid pace, Gene Gula 
played an outstanding game all the way 
through. Alex Patykula and Carl Carlin 
turned in very fine performances to end 
a very successful season. Stan Pelczar- 
ski scored New Bedford's only marker 
of the game and the last one of the 
season.

Basketball 



TEXTILE vs. ALUMNI 

Coach Stan Szulik"s newest edition of 
Textile basketball teams found that the 
Grads were still in the mood for basket- 
ball and were forced to bow to their 
elders. 35-28. The game featured the 
dribbling of Eddie Kosiba and the fine 
plaving of Joe Aulisio of last year's 
team. These boys kept the grads in the 
running, along with the fast passes by 
Ed George which resulted in many 
points. 

The undergrads tried desperately to 
close the gap in the final quarter when 
the Alumni sent in a flock of subs, but 
their lead was too great. John Pierac- 
cini was the only Textile man to display 
any brilliance in floor work. The rest of 
the team tried hard, but were unable to 
click. 

TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE 

With but one half of a minute left to 
play, Junior Pieraccini and Stan Pel- 
zarski scored two quick baskets to give 
Textile a close victory over Thibodeau, 
by the score of 35-34. The Millmen 
showed much better form in this game 



and gave every indication of a good 
season. The passing was almost flaw- 
less, but the team missed several long 
shots. The Fall Riverites led at half 
time period by 15-11, and kept this lead 
until the last period. 

During the last period, Coach Szulik 
changed his line-up and here Textile 
started to roll along with Eddie Hough- 
ton leading the way. Eddie made four 
beautiful shots in this session and these 
along with the last minute baskets 
spelled victory for the locals. Mikus 
and Pelczarski were high scorers in 
this second game. 

TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL 

An over-confident Textile Quintet 
barely managed to eke out a 22-20 
victory over a much younger Vocational 
team. The Millmen strived desperately 
to hit their stride but were, for some 
reason, unable to click. Voke led 
throughout the fray and constantly broke 
up Tech's plays. John Pieraccini again 
came through for Textile by shooting 
the winning marker. Outstanding also 
were Elton Mann and Leo Winiarski.

TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE 
Holding the powerful Becker College 
to the close score of 49-40, New Bedford 
Textile School played its best game of 
the current season. This game also 
proved to be one of the best ever wit- 
nessed at the Tech Gym, as it was a nip 
and tuck affair until the last three 
minutes. Here Becker went on a scor- 
ing spree to win the game. 

Textile trailed 35-34 as the contest 
went into the last period, but the splen- 
did shooting of the Becker forwards 
widened their lead considerably. Elton 
Mann, aggressive forward, headed the 
scoring for Textile with eleven points, 
earned mostly with beautiful shots from 
the center of the court. Winiarski also 
was well up in the scoring column, 
being credited for five field baskets. 
TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 
New Bedford Textile snapped back 
into the win column by defeating its 
ancient rival Durfee Textile to the tune 
of 41-30. Starting out slowly, the local 
Millmen, led Durfee at the end of the 
first half by 17-15, and then put on the 
pressure in the remaining periods to 
outscore their opponents 24-15. Eddie 
Houghton, star left forward, was lost 
to Textile when he suffered a sprained 
ligament during one of the many 
scrambles for the ball. 

Leo Winiarski played a marvelous 
defensive game and excelled in contin- 




ually taking the ball off of the back- 
boards. Al Mikus was the high scorer 
of Textile, and he practically tore the 
nettings apart by dropping in seven 
field goals and two fouls to make the 
evening very successful for himself and 
the team. 

TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE 

Textile continued its spectacular play- 
ing by turning back Thibodeau Business 
College for the second time in the sea- 
son by the score of 40-34. The whalers 
handled the ball flawlessly and made 
most of their shots count. Coach 
Szulik's boys scored heavily in the third 
period with "Long John" Pieraccini 
leading the way. Elton Mann was 
forced to leave the game in the second 
period when he chipped a bone in his 
left foot. 

Junior Pieraccini hoisted in eighteen 
points to lead the scorers, while Stan 
Pelczarski starred on the defensive by 
holding the opponent's star forward to 
a scoreless evening. Floyd Ashworth re- 
turned to the floor after a long layoff 
and turned in a commendable per- 
formance at guard. 

TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT NAVAL 
TRAINING 

Newport Naval Station snapped Tex- 
tile's winning streak by scoring a de- 
cisive 42-28 victory. The Sailors' rapid 
passwork and fine defensive play were 
the deciding factors in winning the con- 
test. 

The Millmen were unable to pene- 
trate the air-tight defense and were 
forced to resort to long shooting which 
most of the time was erratic. Several 
combinations were tried in order to 
silence the bombardment of the Navy 
guns, but the onslaught could not be 
stopped. Leo Winiarski was the only 
Textile man to do any scoring against 
the Middies as he dropped in twelve

points. Aillery, besides scoring six 
points, played a very good game. 

TEXTILE vs. BRYANT COLLEGE 

The highly touted Brvant College 
quintet easily set back Textile by the 
one-sided score of 51-24. The Cotton 
men were still unable to snap out of 
their slump, and Bryant seemed to make 
points at will. It was largely due to 
the efforts of Stan Pelczarski that the 
locals were able to make any kind of a 
showing in the first half, for the robust 
guard played a wonderful floor game 
and came through with a much needed 
eight points. 

Textile's scoring ended when Aillery 
put in a difficult shot from the center of 
the floor with five minutes remaining in 
the game. He was high scorer for the 
losers leading his teammates by nine 
points. 

TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE 
New Bedford Textile again snapped 
back into the right side of the ledger at 
the expense of Durfee Textile by trim- 
ming the Fall River outfit for the second 
time, 30-27. The game was a typical 
old time meeting between the two teams 
with feeling running high in certain 
periods, especially in the fourth. Our 
boys were leading as the game went into 
the last period, but during this session 
the score changed hands three times, 
with the locals winning out in the last 
minute. 

Joe Dias played a tireless game for 
the winners by being constantly in the 
line of battle. Also outstanding in the 
Textile lineup was Al Mikus. He kept 
dashing out in the open to score many 
baskets which greatly aided in determin- 
ing the final outcome of the game.

Hammond gymnasium, Vocation won 
by 29-15. The Textile boys apparently 
entered the game feeling too confident 
and took too much for granted. Mean- 
while the Voke lads settled down to 
serious business and piled on a sub- 
stantial lead which could not be over- 
come. The Millmen tried to forge ahead 
in the final quarter, but their rally was 
cut short when Winiarski and Dias were 
lost by the foul route. 

Jerry Aillery and Elk Mann, who re- 
turned after being on the sidelines for 
three games, played best for the losers. 

TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE 

Playing a powerful team at Worcester, 
Textile was completely outclassed by 
Becker College, who scored at will and 
gave the Millmen their worst defeat of 
the season. The Collegians tossed in 73 
points to Textile's 38. 

Coach Szulik tried desperately to mus- 
ter a team capable of stemming the con- 
stant drives of Becker's forwards, who 
dropped in fifty-two points. 

Only two Textile men displayed any 
talent which could approach that of 
their opponents. These were Whalley 
and Leo Winiarski, who scored twelve 
and ten points respectively. Whally 
also played a fine defensive game.

TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT NAVAL 
TRAINING 

Defeating the Textile men for the sec- 
ond time this season, the Sailors won 
by the score of 38-26 at their home 
court. This loss was the fourth in a 
row for our boys and proved to be the 
worst slump suffered by any Textile 
team for some time. The Sailors grad- 
ually crept away from their visitors as 
the game grew older. Navy led, 8-4, 
18-10, 28-18, at the quarters. 

The game was very rough as the 
referee failed to use the whistle, but 
merely let the struggle roll on, touch- 
ing the ball only when it went offside. 
Eddie Houghton was the star for Textile 
by dropping in thirteen points, while 
Stan Pelczarski played his usual good 
game at guard. 



TEXTILE vs. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE 
FRESHMEN 

Textile redeemed itself for its poor 
playing in the previous games by hold- 
ing a fast Providence College Freshman 
team to the score of 50-40. Although 
the Millmen lost this game, it was one 
of the best played by them this current 
season. Textile was kept in the running 
mostly by the fine work of Jerry Aillery, 
who was all over the floor, breaking up 
plays and scoring vital baskets. 

This game ended the scholastic en- 
deavors of Leo Winiarski, Floyd Ash- 
worth, and John Whalley. Ashworth 
and Mann stood out on the defensive, 
while Aillery dropped in eleven points 
to become high scorer of his team. 

In a return game with Bryant College, 
Textile lost 65-20. 



Tennis 



Textile's crack tennis aggregation held 
its first practice on April 26, under the 
tutelage of Malcolm Richardson. This 
initial limbering up exercise was held 
at Brooklawn Park, and Elbert Tripp 
and Elmer Diggle gave every indication 
that they would have a successful season. 

With these men as a nucleus, Coach 
Richardson built up a team which 
proved to be capable of meeting any 
type of opposition. The other men on 
the team were Louis Pacheco, Nelson 
Kessel, Louis Gagnon, and Arnold 
Aspden. 

After smashing through six consecu- 



tive matches without a defeat, the Textile 
racqueteers loosened up and lost their 
last two games to complete the season 
with six wins and two losses.

Golf 



T?OR the first time in the history of the 
■*■ school. New Bedford Textile was 
represented on the fairways with the 
initiation of a golf team. Malcolm 
Richardson, an instructor in the Design- 
ing Department, voluntered his services 
as coach and issued the first call for 
practice on April 28. Only a small 
number of candidates reported, and 
those who survived the final cut were 
Ernest Krig, Frank Aspin, Fred Geary, 
Leo Winiarski, Jerry Aillery, and Bob 
Potter. 

Frank Aspin was appointed manager 
and was instructed to draw up some 
sort of a schedule. An attempt was 
made to gain admission in the Inter- 
scholastic Golfing League, but this 
proved to be fruitless. 



Frank therefore had to arrange a 
schedule in a very short time as the 
season was slowly drawing to a close. 
Matches were obtained with Vocational 
and East Providence on the home and 
home basis. The Textile divot diggers 
did not fare so well in these contests, for 
they had to bow to their younger op- 
ponents in both matches. 

Outstanding for the Textile team was 
Ernie Krig who lost only one match, 
and that being in the East Providence 
game. 

Hopes are high for a more successful 
season this year for all of the members 
of last year's squad will return to try 
and place Textile on the golfing map.

Debating 



REPRESENTING the Textile School 
for the second year, the debating 
team has risen to new heights due to 
the aroused interest shown by the student 
body. Under the tutelage of Attorney 
David Entin and the management of 
Robert Golub, many contacts were made 
with college varsity teams which helped 
the school into public notice. 

As a practice debate, the Textile de- 
baters started the season on January 14, 
with an unanimous decision over the 




Standing: F. Geary, C. Flanagan. 
Seated: R. Golub, H. Taylor. 



New Bedford High School team, uphold- 
ing the affirmative of the resolution : 
"The National Labor Relations Board 
should be empowered to enforce arbitra- 
tion in all industrial disputes." The 
team consisted of: Robert Golub, Clif- 
ford Flanagan, Edward Mullaly, and 
Henry Taylor who gave a remarkable 
rebuttal. Mayor Leo E. J. Carney acted 
as chairman for the evening. 

As guests of Amherst College, Fred 
Geary, Clifford Flanagan, Henry Taylor, 
Robert Golub, and Edward Mullaly 
participated in a round of debates with 
Amherst, University of North Carolina, 
Muhlenberg College of Virginia, and 
Wesleyan University. These were "no- 
decision" debates and were conducted 
on the Oregon System which includes 
cross examination. The visiting teams 
were entertained with a play "Henry 
the IV", and with a forensic frolic. 

The two remaining debates on the 
schedule are a debate with the local 
branch of the Knights of Columbus who 
will uphold the negative on: "Resolved 
that the City of New Bedford should 
adopt the plan B charter form of gov- 
ernment." The other is a debate with 
Lowel Textile Institute on May 6 about 
the highly debated question of the Na- 
tional Labor Relations Board. It is 
also probable that a debate may be ar- 
ranged with Worcester Polytechnic In- 
stitute where there is a newly formed 
debating society. 

Debating at Textile is still in its in- 
fancy, but with the new spirit shown 
it by the students and faculty, the future 
looks bright and Textile should rise to 
new heights in the forensic art.

IN THE FUTURE * AS IN THE PAST 

For seventy-three years Scott & Williams has been engineering 
improvements in knitting machines, the value of which can 
be measured in the higher standards of work done by the 
mills who use them. Each year adds to our experience . . . 
gives us a surer touch in the creation of better machines. 
Logical indeed is the confidence the knitting industry places 
in Scott & Williams and its ability to meet the demands of the 
future — with further improvements wherever improvement is 
possible.

THREE-WAY PROTECTION OF 
FIRESTONE TRIPJLI '- SAFE T/RIS 



V^AREFUL drivers everywhere are 
equipping their cars with tires that are safe 
under all driving conditions. They know 
that extra care used in selecting their new 
tires saves worry — and may save many 
precious lives. This year, car owners f 

everywhere are changing to Firestone 
Triple-Safe Tires, because: .^ 

THEY PROTECT AGAINST SKIDDING. 

The scientifically designed tread will stop 
your car up to 2 5% quicker. 

THEY PROTECT AGAINST BLOWOUTS. 

The Firestone patented Gum-Dipping 
process counteracts the internal friction 
and heat that ordinarily cause blowouts. 

THEY PROTECT AGAINST PUNCTURES. 

Two extra layers of Gum-Dipped cords 
under the tread add strength to the tire and 
guard against the penetration of sharp 
particles. 

Visit your nearest Firestone Dealer or 
Auto Supply and Service Store today and 
join the Firestone SAVE A LIFE Campaign 
by equipping your car with a set of new 
Firestone Triple-Safe Tires. 

Listen to the Voice of Firestone featuring Richard 
Crooks and Margaret Speaks, Monday evenings 
over Nationwide N. B. C. Red Network
